How to cheer up a dull corner of a garden
Garden ornaments are a great way of adding colour and character to a garden. Some can be bold and cheerful like our brightly painted garden ornaments made out of old oil drums in Haiti, and others can be a nice surprise while looking around the garden or as certain plants die back. Some garden ornaments are referred to as “bling” but these copper snails are tasteful and a little quirky. They add an unexpected splash of colour to contrast with or enhance your planting, or to cheer up a dull corner. They can even be moved around – if a plant has finished blooming or is taking a long time to come out, then the snail can be placed in that spot to cheer it up temporarily. The best way of doing this is to fix it to an pot with a specimen plant that can be moved around. Alternatively, fix it to a piece of driftwood that can be staked out strategically.
